I listened to the entire podcast and didn't hear any mention of Star Frontiers.

I didn't say that they mention Star Frontiers. I said that they mentioned my Star Frontiers campaign. They did provide a link to my game report at this site.

I thought it might get more people to show up to this site.

I thought that people would be glad that this site is getting exposure elsewhere.....

You said, "My Star Frontiers Campaign was mentioned on the Godzilla Gaming Podcast."  That implies it was mentioned in the podcast itself, because you didn't say otherwise.  Tongue out

It will.  I think it did.  We are.  At least, I know I am.  You just should have said "link on the site", because your words implied otherwise.  Tongue out  It's all right.  (Didn't hear much actually worth listening to in the podcast, but it might have just been a dull episode.)

I poked around their site a bit but didn't see any link.  I'm probably blind; could you point it out?

The link is the word 'link' in bold in the second paragraph.  It definitely doesn't stand out but that is just their website style making it not obvious.  Ideally they would have made the words "Chris Harper's game report" the link instead of just the word 'link'.

And there it is!  Sheesh, I must be blind.  Definitely a good way to get the word out.

We should do our OWN podcast radio show!!!

How does one go about doing this?

That's not a bad idea.  At some level you just need a way to record your voice.  I listen to a computer one where they record their phone conversations over skype and then do a little post processing to get the sound cleaned up.

Maybe we could even play a couple games via podcast....

You can do it a number of ways. The best way is using GarageBands website called gcast.com. You can set it up just like a podcast, but you do it all over your cell phone of by putting together different tracks made on your own equipment. From there you can have it put on the podcast lists of itunes. But I suggest doing a dry run before putting together an actual episode.

I have an excellent freeware program called Audacity that is really cool and has a file conversion to standard sound types.  It also has basic editing features.  I HIGHLY recommend it.

Maybe Bill could set aside a portion of the site for them?

In terms of topics:

I think a review of the past Frontiersmen all the way back from #1 would provide good material.
Then also some email Q&A, similar to those Goblin dudes.
And then maybe some adventure ideas or something...
Any other suggestions?

Any ideas for a cool name for the cast?

I'll just go generic for now... But we should come up with something cool.

I wouldn't mind getting invoved in this and I could host the podcasts on my site as well, especially if Bill has storage or bandwidth limitations.

I'll have to think about name ideas.  Everything coming to mind at the moment sounds lame or cheesy.

Well guys,

There's really nothing to get involved with, other than maybe submitting questions or ideas.

I got it covered.  The first installment is ready. 

Larry - do you have any space?

I'm just going to review the Frontiersman issues first, going all the way back to #1.

It does sound like a great idea. I dont know it it is exactly my cup of tea but I definitely support it and think it is a grand idea.
